TITAN vs. Crossfire Frame Time Testing (2560x1600)

Please note that our complete frame time testing methodology can be found HERE. For the purposes of this section, any frame time above 40ms (ie: 25FPS or below) should be considered too slow to maintain a fluid in-game experience.

Back in the original GTX TITAN review, we mentioned that AMD’s HD 7970GHz Edition exhibited a horrendous amount of stutter and adding another card certainly doesn’t help this situation. The only two titles where the Crossfire setups provide a relatively smooth gameplay experience are Dirt: Showdown and Max Payne 3.

In every other situation Crossfire is completely dominated by NVIDIA’s TITAN, which exhibits incredibly docile frame time results. This just goes to show that raw framerates really don’t mean all that much when it comes to fluid onscreen frame delivery.
